2020 Snapshot Day Announced


The people who use our libraries know just how valuable they are.

When we share their stories and bring visibility to the impact we have on people’s lives, we communicate the value of libraries to a larger audience and raise our profile in the eyes of taxpayers, administrators, lawmakers, and other stakeholders.

It’s easy to jump in and take part in "Snapshot Day" on February 11, 2020, the focal point of our statewide Love Your Library campaign in the month of February.

We invite you to download promotional materials to print, display, and hand out at your library. Invest a modicum of staff time to strategize the snapshot “worth a thousand words” that you can share to social media with the hashtag #snapshotdaynj and encourage library users to do the same.

Each time a registered library posts a photo to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, and tags it #snapshotdaynj during the month of February, it will be given a chance to win one of the prizes donated to our cause: a $400 credit with Ingram, and two $25 gift certificates courtesy of Vernon Library Supplies.

Just as important as the snapshots are the stories. Please download our carefully designed half-sheet comment cards and solicit participation from the public. The most compelling quotes that illustrate taxpayers reaping the benefits of public library use from all over NJ will be compiled and shared online as well as printed on tote bags and posters that will be delivered to state legislators. This is our chance to highlight the true value of libraries and amplify the voices of the people who love what we do.
